SHOPPING OUR STASH #317 - Wood is Good

Hello crafty peeps and welcome!

This week at
we want to see some kind of wood or woodgrain on your projects!

I've have these wooden word bubbles for about a year, sitting, lonely,
waiting to be used, and this was the perfect time to!

My card is based off of Freshly Made Sketch #299 (yes, I was working ahead)
I painted the word bubble with Forest Moss Distress Paint (DP), then went over the edges lightly with  Vintage Photo DP.  While that was drying, I added the strips of paper to the main panel, then
embossed it with that cool embossing folder. I did finish the inside, but I've used
my favorite swear word on it, so I've left that pic out. LOL!

So now it's your turn! Break out those wooden embellies, the woodgrain paper, 
that woodgrain embossing folder and have some fun! Be sure to link up your
project at Shopping Our Stash so we can check it out!
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!
